He was a standout at Arizona State University, breaking the record at the school for most receptions by a tight end at 115. He was drafted in the first round at No. 31 overall by the Ravens in 2001. Heap was a two-time Pro Bowler and made the All-Pro team in 2003.
Heavenly Father please be with the Heap family……….
